How old were you when you got your first tattoo and what was it?
I was at the perfect age of 17 and I got my "CUNT" on both ankles, it had been my nick name for a few years and I felt it was fitting for my first one.. my family wasn't too thrilled at first but now I have my great grandma saying the "C" word at Thanksgiving.
Your debut album “Beauty Killer” will hit stores on Sept.22nd, how would you describe it to us?
Close your eyes and picture how it felt to have your hymen broken and the feeling the next day when the guy never called you back. That's how it feels to listen to my album for the first time. It's refreshing and more fun then a Chuck E. Cheese bitch fight between parents. I'm not Mastodon but if you wanna escape reality for 50 minutes because you can't afford meth anymore, then you might like "Beauty Killer"
What made you decide to go from makeup to music?
Realizing that I should be center stage and not behind camera lenses was my first inkling. I got tired of making everyone else look good when my alien looking face was already Photoshop ready. Singing was never my life goal when I was little but after I played my first show and felt that adrenaline rush, I couldn't stop.
What inspired you to write the song “Louis Vuitton Body Bag”?
I had never touched on the subject of "love" before writing this record. It never appealed to me because blowing bros was hotter then heartfelt memories. This song is my version of a love song. I was tired of hearing all that fake Kelly Clarkson bullshit so I invited my close friend Matt Skiba (Alkaline Trio) to sing back what I've always wanted a guy to say to me while he's killing me.
There are rumors saying you’re in talk with E! for a reality TV show… Can you tell us more about that?
No network has been decided yet but I'm working on a reality show for the 2nd time now. First try, I backed out! Shocking right? All the people who think I'm a fame sucking whore are probably rolling their eyes at me right now. Reality check, I wasn't interested in being America's next hooker like Tila Tequila. I don't wanna be remembered for making out with ugly people that a casting director found on Craigslist. I have a tiny bit more self respect then that. We'll see what happens and if everyone can agree on my vision.
